Recipients & Amounts
Democrat for US President
Hillary Clinton has a long record of fighting for LGBT issues. She has the most robust plan for LGBT equality that any candidate for president has ever laid out. She has vowed to fight for the Equality Act -- a bill that would offer explicit, clear, and permanent non-discrimination protections for LGBT people at the federal level -- and she advocates for dropping the ban on open transgender military service, outlawing dangerous “conversion therapy” for minors, ending the epidemic of transgender violence, and supporting HIV prevention and affordable treatment, among other proposals that would advance equality and support the LGBT community. Clinton’s record stands in stark contrast to the Republican field. None of the GOP candidates support the Equality Act or marriage equality, and many have threatened to revoke, repeal, and overturn the gains made during President Obama’s two terms. They would return to "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and pass the so-called First Amendment Defense Act, which would allow more Kim Davis-like discrimination. In the 2016 presidential election, the stakes could not be higher for LGBT Americans. Already millions of dollars have been spent to try to defeat Hillary Clinton, and she needs financial support now. Please stand with this key ally and make a contribution directly to her campaign here. Her fight is our fight.
Catherine Cortez Masto
Democrat for US Senate (NV)
After eight years as Nevada’s Attorney General, Catherine Cortez Masto is running for the U.S. Senate. Sen. Harry Reid is retiring and backing her for his seat because of her strong leadership and roots in the state. Cortez Masto supports marriage equality and the Equality Act, two key equality measures that her opponent, Rep. Joe Heck (R), has refused to support. Please help keep this seat in pro-equality hands with a contribution today.
Democrat for US US House (MN)
Angie Craig has been a vocal supporter and leader for LGBT equality, and would be the first openly LGBT mother in Congress if elected. Through her advocacy, Angie helped her employer--a Fortune 500 company--create a more pro-LGBT workplace, and become the first company in Minnesota to publicly support marriage equality. Her opponents in this open seat stand opposed to equality, and the frontrunner for the GOP nomination, talk show host Jason Lewis, has been openly hostile. Lewis claims there’s no constitution right to marriage (thankfully the Supreme Court disagreed) and has said allowing transgender students to use their preferred restroom is “an abomination that no school district should adopt.” Please help Angie Craig defeat this bigotry with a contribution to her campaign today.
HRC Equality Votes
“HRC Equality Votes,” is a Super PAC established by HRC to perform an unprecedented organizational effort to register and mobilize the nation’s pro-equality majority, and elect Hillary Clinton and pro-LGBT candidates up and down ballot.
Already this election, HRC opened offices and sent staff and grassroots volunteers to Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina to do voter contact and turnout. “HRC Equality Votes” mobilized its members and supporters to make thousands of voter calls in Super Tuesday states and will continue to do so through the election.
Our opponents are writing big checks to reverse the amazing progress we’ve accomplished. HRC has to raise funds for our cause one contribution at a time to make sure that does not happen. We need your help. The stakes could not be higher.
